Fotopoulos on Best:
“Christina is definitely one of those players who will fill an immediate void for us. We desperately needed to find a player to replace Ashley Mitnick, and we found that player in Christina Best. She’s very fast. She’s a strong tackler and is one of the top players to come out of Colorado. I feel that she will bring immediate athleticism and experience to our back line.”
